Aleppo: Arrests at demonstration

KURDWATCH, April 4, 2012—Nationwide protests on March 30, 2012 resulted again in numerous dead and injured. Throughout the country, demonstrators demanded the fall of the regime. While demonstrators in the Kurdish regions took to the streets under the slogan »[We demand] the rights of the Kurdish people«, demonstrations in the rest of the country took place under the slogan »Muslims and Arabs have disappointed us«. Five demonstrations took place in al‑Qamishli, in the districts of al‑Hilaliyah, al‑ʿAntariyah, Qudurbak, Kurnish, and Qanat Suwais. In ʿAmudah, there were three separate demonstrations, organized by the Democratic Union Party (PYD), the Kurdish Patriotic Conference, as well as by various youth groups including Avahî. In ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî), two separate demonstrations took place that were organized by the PYD and the Kurdish Patriotic Conference, respectively. There were three demonstrations in al‑Hasakah; one centralized protest march took place in each of the cities of al‑Malikiyah (Dêrik), al‑Qahtaniyah (Tirbesipî), al‑Jawadiyah (Çil Axa), al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê), Raʾs al‑ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê), ad‑Darbasiyah, as well as in Aleppo. In the majority Kurdish-inhabited district of al‑Ashrafiyah in Aleppo, police attacked the demonstrators, conducted house searches, and arrested several people.
